A five-piece acoustic Americana group, based in Cambridge, NY, Cradle Switch’s repertoire promises something for everyone. With ballads as well as up-tempo rhythms, the group’s lyrics cover the emotional spectrum moving easily from spirited and gritty to some mellow love songs too. With each performance Cradle Switch balances contemporary songs and classic tunes drawing from bluegrass, country, folk, and a little blues with their own authentic compositions.

The Dorset Players will bring down the curtain on their 91st anniversary season with Oklahoma!, considered one of the seminal musicals in Broadway history. Performances will be at the Dorset Playhouse on May 17-18 and May 24-25 at 7:30 PM and on May 19 and 26 at 2 PM.
The first collaboration of legendary Lyricist Richard Rodgers and Librettist Oscar Hammerstein II, the show was a game-changer when it took Broadway by storm when it opened in 1943. Memorable songs such as “Oh, What A Beautiful Mornin’,” “People Will Say We’re In Love,” and “Oklahoma!, rather than just providing filler, advanced the story of a cowboy, Curly, who falls for a farm girl, Laurey, against the backdrop of prairie life in the Indian Territory, circa 1907.
Tickets can be purchased on-line at www.dorsetplayers.org, in person, or by calling (802) 867-5777. Oklahoma! is proudly sponsored by Above All Vermont, The Barn Restaurant, Errol L.
